Twitter reacts to Ballon d’Or nominations

The omissions of Mesut Ozil, David de Gea and Alexis Sanchez dominated Twitter after the 30-man nomination list for the Ballon d’Or were announced.

Jamie Vardy was a popular pick, the first English player to make the list since 2012.

While Juve keeper Gianluigi Buffon was picked out for his age.

Real Madrid were well represented.

Still, FIFA can’t seem to shake its image.

Riyad Mahrez and Dimitri Payet were happy, though.

At the end of it all, some just can’t get past Cristiano Ronaldo.
